Saturday Scraplift: Design on a Band

I’m always on the lookout for a great design that guides the viewer’s eye and draws attention to photos and journaling. That’s what it’s all about, right? Terri (jdcooper) designed a page that meets all those requirements, and I couldn’t resist lifting it along with my fellow Creative Team members. Here’s Terri’s page and the layouts it inspired.

Joanne snuggled the sweet photo next to the blue band to ground it, and I love her creative framing and masking, as well as the brushwork that completes her page. Could that epoxy rabbit be any cuter on his skis?

Connie (scullen2) highlighted a special picture of her daughter modeling her baby bump. Congratulations, Connie – being a grandparent is the best! Instead of a paper band, Connie created a striking background for her photo with brushes, masks, and elements. I really like the way her journaling flows uninterrupted into her title.

I loved Terri’s design so much that I created almost an exact replica of it. Plaid paper catches my eye every time, so I jumped at the chance to use some on this page. And Katie’s confetti template was the perfect finishing touch to my purple-toned layout.

Terri’s design works beautifully for a single photo to which you want to call attention, but it’s versatile enough to accommodate multiple-photo layouts as well. I look forward to seeing how it inspires you. Post your lift in the Saturday Scraplift Challenge Gallery and in the April Challenge Participation Sign-in thread in the forum.
